The founder and president of Habitat For Humanity made a stop in Tulsa Wednesday.

Millard Fuller took part in Habitat's annual "Building on Faith" week by helping dedicate this new home in north Tulsa. The home is sponsored by the Zarrow Foundation.

The help and hospitality left the new homeowner speechless. Denise Sanderson: “I had my speech all ready for Mister Zarrow, but as you could see I couldn't come out with it."

Millard Fuller, Habitat For Humanity CEO, "The homeowner was asked to speak and she couldn't because she was weeping tears of joy. She and her children are so happy to have a place to live on terms they can pay."

Habitat for Humanity has helped 100 Tulsa families become homeowners.
